As their first major anti-Semitic action after taking power, the Nazis organzed a nation-wide anti-Jewish boycott on 1 April 1933, alegedly to protest anti-German actions by Jews around the world. This poster announces the boycott in the town of Geisenheim.
You all know the disgraceful methods that so-called “German” Jews abroad are using to incite against the German people and Adolf Hitler’s national government.
If we do not want to give up and sink into deeper misery, we must defend ourselves.
We therefore call on you to heed the appeal of our Führer, the German people’s chancellor,
for a boycott against the Jews
and expect the full support of each person in this defensive action.
Do not buy from Jewish shops!
Do not go to a Jewish doctor!
But maintain the strictest discipline. Do not even touch the hair on a Jew’s head.
The boycott begins Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m.
From that moment on, we will watch to ensure that the boycott is strictly followed. He who tries to ignore the boycott will be seen as an enemy of the German people.
On Saturday morning at 9:30 at the Lindenplatz and the Pflänzer there will be a large public
Appear in masses and show that, in the hour of need, you stand with the German people.
In Geisenheim, the following establishments will be boycotted:
Georg Strauß, grain merchant, Marktstraße
Gebr. Strauß, shop, Marktstraße
Moritz Strauß, ironware, Marktstraße
Hugo Forst, leather goods, Landstraße
Dr. Nathan, physician, Landstraße
Löwenthal, butcher, Pflänzer
